No one should have to feel alone, or that they have no one to talk to about their issues. I provide a safe, supportive, and accepting environment to connect.

In 7 cups of tea we have this drop down list that you can click thats called chat. Under the drop down list you will see chat with an online therapist. Click that and look for a therapist that you can chat with.

If you click on "chat" in the upper lefthand corner, there's a line that reads, "Chat with an Online Therapist."

You can use the CHAT window on top of the screen and connect with a listener or a trained therapist, who will however charge a fee for every chat.

There are directories of therapists online that you can filter by area of counseling, location, or anything else that you think might help the person; here's a link to the one from Psychology Today: https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/

You need to talk to them like how you would a best friend or family member because they want you to interact like that so they can help you

In my experience, to try and relate to the person, and listen to him instead of giving advice about what you think they should do.

You just need to push the reffer to a therapist button in your conversation with that member, and they will get the information they need to continue.

If you are a listener there is a referral button. If you are not a listener and would like to talk to a therapist. We would love to lead you in the right direction.

Recommend them to our therapists here at 7 Cups. They get to still remain anonymous, which is likely what they brought them here anyways. 7cups.com/online-therapy

Say something like, "I'm here for you, but I want you to get the best support possible. There are some trained professionals online you could ask about these struggles; they might have some good advice! Here are some recommendations: https://www.7cups.com/therapists/, https://www.7cups.com/online-therapy/?ob=1

Ask the person if they want to try first. Some of them might be hesitant initially, but connect them with a therapist according to their approval. You can then look up counselling websites that feature experienced, professional therapists. Or even professional therapists on 7cups. Encourage them to the give it a try if they aren't aware of how therapy works.

Opening up to them and letting them know what type of person you are. Accept how they respond to you and be willing to explain yourself when the don't understand.

There are online therapy options through 7cups. Another option would be to suggest a type of therapy CBT, DBT, art/music, etc. and ask them to use psychiatry today to find/contact a therapist locally. Be there to listen to there experiences and be sure they know that if it's not a good fit they should keep looking.

Refer them to the 72 hour trial here on 7 cups. I would send them the link right to it, or suggest a similar website with online therapy.

You can direct them to the chat tab, where there is an option to "Chat With an Online Therapist", from there they can find someone to talk to.

You can connect another person to a therapist online by visiting our list of therapists here (https://www.7cups.com/online-therapy/?ob=1). There is also a search avaibale to look for therapists near you (https://www.7cups.com/therapists/). If the individual that you would like to connect with a therapist would better be suited by talking to a listener, you can direct them here (https://www.7cups.com/BrowseListeners/). I hope this helps!

You should try 7 Cups’ group chats or one to one chats with a listener and a supportive community. They have a lot of different specialised members who aim to make you feel better.

Give them the link that is given when you get the helpful hint. Or walk them through the steps on how to find them.

Hey, you'll see at the left side of the screen a text that asks you if you think "this memeber needs more help", there is a green button wiht the text "make a referal", that will do the thing! Good luck!

A couple of ways to connect a person online with a therapist would be here on 7cups or if they would like to chat with someone while using an app to see them they can look into Open Source Counseling which is cheaper than a lot of other places that I found when I was searching.
